DIDACTICS —By Dmkins Wells Officials of the Farmers Coop ,GHn in Wellington Went to the hearing on a restraining* order in Wheeler April 16; but the plaintiff and his attorneys did not show. The restraining order and application for a per- marfent injunction .was dismissed and the gin officials promptly issued orders for the rebate checks to be put in the mail. So the rebate checks from both Wellington and Dodson are now circulating. More than one person has challenged my remark of last week about the money from the rebate checks changing hands four times in two months. They claim new money ...introduced into the channels of trade changes hand five times in thirty ; days, I believe that the figures they are thinking about refer to payroll money, which does change hands rapidly?- in a few days. Some of these big farm operators with money in the bank may keep most of theirs for weeks or months; but eventually it will go for gasoline, insecticides, fertilizer, new farm equipment, etc. Money does change hands faster than you think. The big news/aTtouti Go-ops this week is the Greenbelt Electric Cooperative which will be observing its., Silver Anniversary, at -the annual meeting an 1&e Community Building Friday, April 24. It does not seem like it has been that long since THEY SERVICE GREENBELT LINES Greenbelt Electric Co-operative, Inc. has two service men located in each of three towns, Wellington, Wheeler and Clarendon. Here ready to load a regulator are Donald White, center, and Dick Pendleton, right. Looking on is Paul Baker, in charge of building and ground maintenance. Fifth for WHS Tennis Team Wins District 2-A Title Orval Couch at the suggestion of Harry Patterson was out rounding up members for the proposed co-op. Orval had some lively tales about the year he spent in getting it started'. His biggest bust was in going to see the Hollis Chamber of Commerce — they (promptly started organizing one of their own. Another tale <was that he went without salary for over a year and at one time owed 01- a year's grocery 'lie Raburn bill. If you want a vivid picture of the changes the Electric Cooperatives have brought to farm and ranch living turn over to another part of the paper and read the advertisement of The City State Bank. The idea is that of Zook Thomas, who once worked for this newspaper., Even the suggestion for the type of illustrations he wanted came from Mr. Thomas. This is root something he read in a book or a magazine — Zook was there when the water was carried from the well. George Henry and his associates have done a splendid job in carrying on this work and we extend our best wishes. Their work is important to our community and their members appreciate the way .they get out after tornadoes, bl&zards, and freezing rain. It is a service that deserves commendation. The service work of all the utilities after storms and in times of danger is something that stirs the imagination and the courage and hardihood of the men who climb the poles and fix the mains whether it be gas or water or electricity is something that we should esteem beyond the more glamorous activities of The Wellington high school tennis team won the District 2-A championship Friday, April 17, the fifth district tjitle in athletics for this season, Coach E. W. Clement announced.

Band Trio •our super athletes. Lying in our warm beds we take their work for granted; but as a former city official I have been there as they went to fight fires or repair damaged lines after a storm and I have a vivid recollection of their ordeals. These are strong and able men and deserve our thanks.
